I just wish someone would publish a good-sized, venography study comparing pwMS to healthy controls.
I could not agree more. I have seen plenty of XRay venograms of pwMS clearly showing severe blockages of IJVs etc., including my own. But if I was asked "don't these occur in people without MS?", I would not know the answer.
If this study were carried out using the "Gold Standard" XRay Venography and showed conclusively that the blockages are far more prevelant in pwMS then, surely, the MS societies and neurologists would have to accept that a new dimension to MS has been discovered and that it should be more enthusiastically researched.
It would be black-and-white proof of a physical problem with pwMS which would be much harder to dismiss than the flow issue which, with its complexity, training requirements etc, seems to be a difficult message to get across
